poulan chainsaw 2150

jeffchapJune 7, 2013

My poulan 2150 will not start. OK here goes with things I have done. I have replaced 3 coils and all the fuel lines. Rebuilt carb. Replaced ground and kill wires. I have tried air gap at 25 and 15. Compression checks at 120psi. This unit will not fire with starting fluid. I have replaced 3 spark plugs and set gap at 25. I have watched flywheel and air gap clearance for possible bent crankshaft. I have an identical 2150 that I have rebuilt and it runs fine. I am about to start swapping parts from it. Is there a reed valve that I am overlooking? Anyone up for solving this problem?

Since this is the garage forum, why not build a new garage for the saw?

This sounds like the saga of my Poulan, only it was the repair shop doing the work, not me.
The saw went into the dumpster and I bought an Echo.
